Visit the historical Bonnyville Shaw House
Shaw House History
The Shaw House takes its name from a piece of Bonnyville history, Angus Shaw who was a 1700s fur trader and explorer in the Bonnyville area who competed directly with the Hudson’s Bay Trading Company.
Shaw’s impact on the Bonnyville area is unmistakable and a seven-meter high statue of Angus Shaw currently stands at the Bonnyville & District Museum reminding us of Shaw’s contribution to the fur trade in Western Canada and the represents the prosperity of the Bonnyville region.
